. and thinks his policies are bad. but, in totality, with shepard smith coming at 7:00. with bret baire coming at 6:00, you have a presentation that's not overtly hostile to president obama. what we -- what the contention is is that we glorify the protesters. but that's bull. we just don't demean them like all the other networks do. so i'm trying to get in my mind why the obama people don't see this as a negative toward them. a fight with fox hurts them. helps our ratings, hurts their ratings. but they continue, i think, to make an issue of it. >> well, i mean, the one time during the presidency was the one interview did with john harwood. now, i know other cable networks when they hear the president say cable chatter think the president is talking about them. many think the president is talking about us. during one of his recent town meetings, he said, you know, if you go across cable and you stop your remote at a certain channel you know you hear critical things. bill: of course that's fox. >> of course that's fox. bill: ant you don't get, i quund stand and you correct me if i am wrong, you

pursue their dream in an america that is more equal and more just, including myself. martha: bret bair, this news, although everybody knew it was likely to be coming, it sinks in in many parts of the country, and is felt so strongly in washington. he and his family made civil rights the hallmarks of what he did. how is his loss felt where you are? >> there is outpouring of response from both sides of the ideal. when you look at his 36-year career, it's banned overtime presidencies. he authored or coauthored 2500 pieces of legislation. they were big pieces of legislation. as you mentioned, the civil rights legislation, title 9, cobra. some people say that you can measure a man by what his adversaries say about him. there are a lot of republicans who ideologically were diametrically opposed to senator ted kennedy who are coming out in droves today praising his career on the senate. we learned that former president george w. bush called mrs. vicky kennedy this morning and passed on their condolences. senator ted kennedy worked with president bush on a child left behind. most people you ta
that happened with columbia back in 20 2003 when it was bret down by foam that knocked a hole in the left wing. they want to make sure nothing like this happens on a mission going up. if they should, they have the safe haven you know of the space station to await coming back. again, they want to make sure they have this under control if they can. they have asked to look at what it means if they take another hard look at it because of a remote robotic ship coming up by the japanese to the space station and a crew change by the russians, it will be october before they can launch "discovery." >> let me ask you about something else, they are talking about $15 million to send commercial passengers to space. how real is this? >> it can't be real right now. usa know, you've been here, covered the stuff. $50 million doesn't buy a tank of gas. there's a lot of study going onna lot of flights taking place by commercial enterprise. they should be, and they will get there, but they are not there now. what we have going right now was designed the areas one and areas five and orrian spacecraft, this is wher

. bosworth said bret it takes too long to get going and it is too small. it is not too flexible, especially at the local level. that is a bigger problem when people are willing to pay you to buy buses but not to pay bus drivers, you can be in a situation where people are laying off bus drivers and a half an offer to buy buses and what do you do with that? that is multiplied overall. i don't think this was the optimal way to provide stimulus and offset the recession of state and local fiscal actions that are cyclical. we to exactly the wrong thing when we are raising our taxes and cutting our spending in a recession. on the other hand, a lot of it is happening. the most significant impact may be long-term, which is outside the range of stimulus. some of the money that is in here, not even the larger amount, will have a positive effect. for instance, i should have mentioned, i am on the metro board and the washington area and we are getting too good million dollars in investment funds that we desperately need for capital. we had $500 million and we are getting $200 million. we are cutting our
and into the same one that we will be forced to take?
